  • what if I need to request short-term disability?
    Any new clients seeking short-term disability will need to be admitted to AGAPE and receive services for a minimum of 4-6 consecutive sessions before any submission of documentation to your insurance or policyholder. Please note that there is an additional fee for completing these documents outside of your therapy. That fee will be discussed with you by the AGAPE administration.
  • do you offer teletherapy services?
    Yes!
  • what is your cancellation policy?
    Our cancellation policy requires 24-hour notice of cancellation. Cancellation with less than 24 hours’ notice requires payment in full. If you are unable to attend your session in person, we are available via phone or video. These methods can also be used as a plan for individuals with potential obstacles to attendance such as frequent travel, chronic health issues, COVID related concerns, and more.
  • is your psychotherapy confidential?
    The information discussed in the session is confidential and we will take every step to protect your information. It is unethical for us to disclose content about our work together, with a few exceptions listed below where we are required to break confidentiality: There is a clear and imminent danger to yourself or another person You disclose evidential information of abuse or neglect of a child, yourself, or older adult You authorize us to disclose information by signing a HIPAA form (e.g., to another treatment provider or family member) A court order In a natural disaster
  • what days are you available?
    Each therapist/coach has their own availability and we are open 7 days a week between 9am and 9 pm. Please hit the "contact" tab on the top for questions about our current availability.
  • why do I need an intake session?
    In order to best serve you, our intake coordinator will conduct an intake with you to best match you with our services and the most qualified clinician. In this session, we begin the process of getting to know your story and strengths and what brought you to AGAPE. AGAPE is currently scheduling Intakes within 1 week for daytime appointments (both in person and virtually). Evenings and weekends are highly desired and more difficult to schedule given current client caseloads. Please communicate any daytime flexibility in your schedule to assist us in scheduling you.
  • what can I expect in treatment?
    In the first session, you and your therapist will discuss why you decided to go into treatment and begin discussing relevant current and historical information. Once in treatment, you will make connections to better understand your behavior and patterns, make changes and learn the tools to address new issues as they arise.
  • do you accept insurance?
    We do! We are in-network with Cigna/Evernorth, Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Aetna. We’re also participating providers in Employee Assistance Programs. We work with Anthem EAP, Cigna EAP, and Aetna EAP. We are not in-network with any other EAPs or insurance providers at this time, but we do bill directly as out-of-network providers. We are considered out-of-network (OON) providers by most insurance companies. Many insurance plans have out-of-network benefits that will typically reimburse between 50% to 80% of session costs after your deductible is met. Most Medicaid plans do not currently offer OON benefits. Prior to a consultation and session, our reception and billing team will verify your benefits, explain your out-of-network coverage and make sure that you understand your benefits and cost per session. After sessions, our billing team can file your claims for you or can provide documentation and support for you to submit to your insurance.In all cases we session payments are made in full at the time of the session and insurance reimbursement for covered sessions will be sent directly to you. For more information about your in and out-of-network coverage, please fill out our secure scheduling form where you will be able to upload your insurance card. Our receptionist will check your benefits and get back to you to figure out a payment plan. You can also call us at 929-234-1697 with any questions. Our goal is to reduce financial barriers and make this process as easy and accessible as possible for you!
